OK guys, I love the gold wheels too, but would it look good on a white 04' WRX with a Carbon Fiber hood and trunk??? The hoods are not out yet but as soon as they come out I'm getting one too. What do you all think???

That hyper black looks closer to gunmetal to me. IMHO, that'd look pretty sweet on a white car, especially w/ a CF hood & trunk. That's just my opinion...

IMHO Gold no question, looks real good on white, gold really only looks bad on silver in my opinion.

Can anybody chop and paste an 04'WRX in white with the gold wheels in three angles with a carbon fiber hood and trunk? I want to know how it looks, thanks!

Personally, I'd get the Rota Actions (copy of the Gold Advans in the pic), in gunmetallic or black. The "hyper black" on the Enkie's VERY shiny and almost looks like chrome with a little brake dust on it. If you don't want to look too bling, I'd avoid those.

And I think the black or gunmetallic Actions would match the CF hood and trunk MUCH better. The gunmetallic is the wheel at the bottom of the pic.

Neither the Rotas nor the Advans are forged. But, yes, the manufacturing processes are almost certainly different.
